Mountain pygmy-possum feeding stations follow up

Saving our Species program has been delivering emergency food and water to bushfire-affected mountain pygmy-possums in Kosciuszko National Park.

Mountain pygmy-possum (Burramys parvus) after the Kosciuszko fires

Saving our Species officers checked remote cameras to see how the survivors are faring.

The cameras showed some thrilling results with the possums showing up at nearly every site, although some were more hesitant than others. The cameras also caught some other thirsty animals, including skinks, antechinus and a hungry brushtail possum.

Threatened Species Officers will continue to monitor the cameras over the coming months.
